Custom Seat

Post #1 by JonathonCranny » Tue Dec 03, 2019 3:58 am

So today I decided to get started on a custom seat. The reason for this project is the seats I've seen for the old Goldwing all rise at the back and are as wide at the tail as they are at the tank, none of them follow the frame of the bike.

I started out with a 3mm piece of Perspex and I'll put some fibreglass over the top to give it some strength and to tidy it all up.

The reason for the Perspex is that it's super easy the heat up and bend into shape as well as to cut and drill. I'll cut a piece of 9mm mdf timber and use some foam and vinyl to make the actual seat nice and flat like a tracker/scrambler seat.

I'll add some more photos as I go over the next couple weeks.

Nice, really interested to see how it turns out. Been wanting something like this myself but no real idea where to start.
